Martin Automatic demonstrated two lines of automatic splicing systems at the show. The new MLS Automatic Splicer is making its European debut in Brussels. The MLS is a compact lap splicer that is ideal for introducing additional webs to a process, such as mid-press laminating applications. It is designed to mount above the printing units on new or existing web presses, or at a right angle to a press line.
“The MLS splicer eliminates breaks in production normally experienced by manually changing the laminating film rolls,” said Markus Knott, European sales manager. “Benefits to the converter come in reduced waste and increased productivity of the press.”
The LRD Automatic Transfer Rewind also was on display, as was the MBS Automatic Butt Splicer.
